No strike at SAA
SAA said yesterday that the SA Transport and Allied Workers Union (Satawu) had formally withdrawn a notice of strike served on its maintenance subsidiary, SAA Technical, after signing a wage agreement.
The troubled airline was forced to review and update its contingency measures to ensure business continuity and to minimise the impact on its operations in the event the strike action went through.
SAA spokesperson Tlali Tlali said that another meeting had been scheduled for yesterday afternoon, with Satawu to iron out some issues.
“This means that the threat to cause possible operational instability as a result of industrial action has effectively been removed,” Tlali said.
“We are truly encouraged by these developments.” – ANA
